Looking for a new License

(1/2) > >>

n00b:
I am getting ready to upload a new release later today with a lot of fixes and improvements.  I have been looking over my current license and I realize that it requires any program written in RCBasic to distribute a copy of the MIT License with it.  Is there a open source license that will allow my users to not have to distribute a license with there works?

Cybermonkey:
Zlib?

The notice must only included in a source distribution of the software ...

n00b:
I can't believe I missed this. I thought MIT and zlib were identical so I just went with MIT because github had a template for it already.  Thanks.

I don't think that's true. Each copy of RCBasic itself must be distributed with a copy of MIT license, but it doesn't apply to programs written in it.

The MIT license says:

So n00b might be right...
